  • Bug Fix: Gaining experience from repairing own damage

While the OpenGL Renderer is not 100% complete the game is fully playable. The parts that are missing are: Credits, In-Game Help Screen (Its a manual built into the game) and the Graphs at the end of missions that show a timeline of when units were created/destroyed. The multiplayer map descriptions are missing scrollbars. Everything else should work fine.

The OpenGL Renderer requires a Graphics Card with OpenGL 2.0 support as a minimum. The Same Resolution option may run slow on older hardware such as a GeForce 5.

By default Original War will still use Direct Draw unless you select OpenGL in the launcher's configuration section.

Language Packs do not overwrite anything and you can have more than one installed.

The patch is available for download on OWN & OWS.
